Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 174
[Friday 23 June 1916]
Left Ognatina 5.30 pm for Romani, the whole Brigade fatigued.
My Horses stood it well- met 2 Turks Camel Patrol both ran.
Men's minds work differently when called after a sleep at a Halt- on the march- One man charged the N.C.O. who woke him- thought TURKS . Jumped up once & ran in my sleep the opposite way to my horse-
We halt for 10 minutes every hour- & all nearly go to sleep, as we are doing the round of the clock. €“ aviator & observer WALKED to our outposts, from Machine.
I've got a bit of the propeller as a small mementoe of a big perish-
Arrived Romani midnight
